Get an appointment with at least 2, preferably 3 lawyers. I made an appointment with 3 lawyers and made sure that I would not be charged for the initial appointments. I then chose one of them. It was a hard decision to make...all three seemed equally assertive and accomplished.

It doesn't mean you have to hire anyone, just make your points clear about your case and what you hope to have accomplished. Don't let them know the name of your present lawyer. If you are really impressed with one of the lawyers, you can start making the decision to fire your present one.

It really sounds like you would do better with another lawyer to handle your case.

Btw, I got some names from a friends' lawyer, and also by phoning around..you would be surprised how helpful the receptionists and clerks can be...
